We came to Tampa for business and found a very good rate. But you know what they say, you get what you pay for, I left for a day of business in downtown Tampa and returned after supper at about 8pm. Unlocked the door and found the dirty towels still on the floor, garbage cans still full. Basically the room... More

Stayed there for 2 nights with friends and the hotel's property was a pleasant surprise. The service is above average. They have a restaurant called Beaches which has excellent breakfast options. Totally loved it. Would definitely recommend it to fellow travelers.

Was there 29-31 December timeframe for a funeral. Close to airport AND the church where the service was to be. Also is close to Walmart, Walgreens, etc and all the stores you may need for "I forgot to bring" items. My friend checked in a day earlier and requested a Bay view but was refused.

The hotel is ideally located between the two cities and close Tampa Airport - and not noisy at all. The room was quite large with a king bed, a fullsize fridge, coffee machine and a balcony opposite the sea. We enjoyed our stay (4 nights) very much.

We will start with the positives.....Beautiful view of the bay from the Hotel. You see Manatees and Dolphins from the dock in front of the Hotel and there is a nice public walkway/jogging trail/bike path steps from the Hotel which was pretty cool. The Hotel Shuttle was convenient and the driver was nice. Now for the negatives, I wouldn't recommend... More

Unfortunately this hotel is located next to Whiskey Joe's bar and Hogan's Beach as well as boat docks. Until midnight there was dueling music blaring outside. It was as if we were in the bar and not on the 3rd story in the hotel. There is no reason the music needed to be that loud. With all windows and sliding... More

On the exterior this hotel seems great- pool and outdoor beach bar. However, getting any sleep at all is near to impossible! The beds are extremely uncomfortable and I am now leaving with back and neck pain. Every time I moved the bed made a lot of creaking and woke my husband up. The noise level and lack of sound...

I booked this hotel though the Priceline App, without knowing anything about it. The hotel room was excellent, clean, comfortable. We stayed for one night in our travel to different places in the Florida and this was one of the options. The service we received was great. We asked for a delivery of pizza, and came fast. Recommended.
